Mos Burger makes Thailand excited…
So the talk of the town is Mos Burger opening up branches in Thailand (yup things are slow here in BKK at the moment, be patient with us!)
Having been a chef in a previous life, I thought it was my duty to cut through the hype and head on down to the Central World branch and see what all the fuss was about.
First impressions count in the restaurant industry and Mos Burger has a “Mom ‘n Pop” design to the layout of the store and menu. The first thing you may be greeted with is a large queue to order, yup this isn’t Le Gavroche but a Japanese burger joint. After 20 minutes in the queue, which gave us ample time to read the menu and decide what we were having, we placed the order and sat down. 10 minutes later this bundle of joy was placed on the table, and in the sheer excitement of the moment, we forgot to take pictures (and I’m the photographer!!)
First things first, back to the impressions count statement, Mos Burger really has thought about the process of eating it’s food. The packaging has been well-designed so that you can eat the food and not end up with sauce/crap all over you, this is commonly known as the Mickey D’s method of delivery.
I had the Teriyaki Chicken burger, whilst the lovely Emma had the Burger with the butterfly prawns as the sideline. WOW, crispy fresh lettuce, seriously when last did you have lettuce which wasn’t soggy?
Overall I’ll admit, we were impressed and this was by far the 2nd best burger I’ve had, the first place going to the Kobe Beef Burger I had in NYC, which was 169 dollars.
If you are looking for a better replacement burger than the usual crap, Mos Burger is your place (lets hope they sort out the queue issues though!)
